CHICAGOChambers USA, an annual guide to the world's best lawyers and law firms, has again placed intellectual property law firm Brinks Gilson & Lione in Band 1 for IP law firms in Illinois, its highest level of distinction.

Chambers also honored four individual Brinks attorneys for their accomplishments in intellectual property law in Illinois. Internationally respected trademark attorney Jerome Gilson was again named a Senior Statesman, by virtue of his close links with major clients and his pivotal role in the firm's success, and Brinks' immediate past-president Gary M. Ropski ranked in Band 1, while shareholders William H. Frankel, chair of the firm's copyright group, ranked in Band 3, and Laura Beth Miller, a member of the firm's board of directors and its executive committee, ranked in Band 4.

Chambers annual ranking is based on information gathered from interviews with clients and peers and an assessment of recently completed deals and cases. Its evaluation of Brinks, one of the largest IP law firms in the United States, focused on qualities such as technical legal ability, professional conduct, client service, and commercial astuteness.
